Just like most of you, I went to download Safari 3 beta as soon as it was available. I opened the disk image and ran the installer. I didn't quit Safari before starting the install, but figured it wouldn't be a problem. About 10 seconds in to the install, I got an error message that said something along the lines of "There has been an error in installing". Safari quit abruptly. The install process stopped in its tracks and I had to force quit the installer. I tried to run the install again and it wouldn't even open. It quit before even bouncing once in the dock. Same after a restart. And another restart. And repairing permissions. So I tried to launch the old Safari. It showed a "?" over the icon; it was deleted. Distraught, I tried to open iChat to tell a friend about my problem. iChat wouldn't launch. I tried all the apps in my dock. Safari, iTunes, iChat, Adium, Coda, Mail, SubEthaEdit and Shiira are all dead, which basically covers all of my most commonly used apps. I have a feeling WebKit was corrupted or deleted, along with who knows how many other vital system components. Fantastic. To top it off though, my friend has my Tiger install disks. Any suggestions, or should I just switch to Windows? I'm about that frustrated.
